Evidence for the Acceleration of Cosmic Ray Protons
The explanation of how cosmic ray protons, the major constituent of cosmic rays, are accelerated in interstellar space has been a longstanding problem.

Abstract The study of the gamma–ray radiation produced by cosmic rays that escape their accelerators is of paramount importance for (at least) two reasons: first, the detection of those gamma–rayExpand
Gamma-ray emission from supernova remnants and surrounding molecular clouds
Galactic cosmic rays are believed to be accelerated at supernova remnant shocks. Gamma-ray observations of both supernova remnants and associated molecular clouds have been used in several occasionsExpand
Gamma-ray emission from young supernova remnants: hadronic or leptonic?
The debate on the nature of the gamma-ray emission from young supernova remnants is still open. Ascribing such emission to hadronic rather than leptonic processes would provide an evidence for theExpand
Gamma-rays and neutrinos from RX J1713–3946 in a lepto–hadronic scenario
The gamma-ray emission of RX J1713–3946, despite being extensively studied in the GeV and TeV domains, remains poorly understood. This is mostly because, in this range, two competing mechanisms canExpand
GAMMA-RAY EMISSION OF ACCELERATED PARTICLES ESCAPING A SUPERNOVA REMNANT IN A MOLECULAR CLOUD
We present a model of gamma-ray emission from core-collapse supernovae (SNe) originating from the explosions of massive young stars. The fast forward shock of the supernova remnant (SNR) canExpand
A detailed study of the molecular and atomic gas toward the γ-ray supernova remnant RX J1713.7-3946: Spatial TeV γ-Ray and interstellar medium gas correspondence
RX J1713.7-3946 is the most remarkable TeV {gamma}-ray supernova remnant (SNR) that emits {gamma}-rays in the highest energy range. We have made a new combined analysis of CO and H I in the SNR andExpand
Understanding hadronic gamma-ray emission from supernova remnants
We aim to test the plausibility of a theoretical framework in which the gamma-ray emission detected from supernova remnants may be of hadronic origin, i.e., due to the decay of neutral pions producedExpand
Constraints on the cosmic ray diffusion coefficient in the W28 region from gamma-ray observations
GeV and TeV gamma rays have been detected from the supernova remnant W28 and its surroundings. Such emission correlates quite well with the position of dense and massive molecular clouds and thus itExpand
Anisotropic cosmic ray diffusion and gamma-ray production close to supernova remnants, with an application to W28
Cosmic rays that escape their acceleration site interact with the ambient medium and produce gamma rays as the result of inelastic proton-proton collisions. The detection of such diffuse emission mayExpand
